ANN ARBOR – After a successful first year, A2 Artoberfest will return to town this fall.

The art fair is presented by the Guild of Artists & Artisans, the organization that runs the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair.

Spanning Fourth Avenue from the downtown area to Kerrytown, fairgoers can enjoy browsing and shopping work from roughly 75 jury-selected fine artists on Oct. 8 and 9.

Street parking and parking structures are located conveniently around the event. The Guild recommends parking in the structure at Ann and Ashley streets or the Fourth Ave. and Washington structure.

The event celebrates the spirit of the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair on a smaller scale with entertainment, food trucks, craft beer and cider -- and cooler temperatures than the main event.
